LOCATION
Situated along the scenic southwestern corner of Rhode Island’s coastline, Watch Hill is widely acknowledged as one of Rhode Island’s most beautiful seaside villages. Perched on a hillside between the ocean and bay, Watch Hill is blessed with miles of exquisite white sandy beaches. The village, with its picturesque yacht-filled harbor, charming shops, and winding streets lined with handsome century-old summer cottages, affords a step back in time to idyllic summer days filled with swimming, sailing, golf, and beachside picnics.

From its lofty perch above the ocean High Watch commands breathtakingly beautiful panoramic water views that overlook Fishers Island Sound, Little Narragansett Bay, the Watch Hill Light and the gorgeous white sands of seven mile long East Beach. This unparalleled seaside estate sits on the highest point of land in Watch Hill, and with its 65 foot elevation, it also claims the unique distinction of occupying what is thought to be the highest point of direct waterfront land on the entire eastern seaboard, from Florida to Southern New England.

Designed by an eminent Philadelphia architect, this gracious oceanfront estate was built to exacting standards in 1930 and has been carefully maintained over the years. Presently in excellent condition, the 8 bedroom residence presides over 5 ¼ acres of beautiful lawns and gardens which encompass over 700 feet of shoreline. The lovely grounds are highlighted with a wonderful and large Pebble Tec outdoor pool that enjoys the added benefit of an adjoining newly renovated pool house/fitness center. Surrounding the pool and main house are magnificent walled terraces that offer a spectacular venue for outdoor entertaining with their incredible vistas of sparkling ocean and surf.

RESIDENCE
Encompassing four levels of living area, this exceptional 16 room residence is meticulously maintained and outfitted with beautiful detailing including hardwood floors, handsome crown moldings, 8 large fireplaces, and expansive floor to ceiling windows that capture glorious panoramic water vistas and take full advantage of the delightful ocean breezes.

First Floor: A vaulted ceiling Entrance Hall (12x27) opens to a grand scale Living Room (24x32) outfitted with white oak hardwood floors, crown moldings, a large fireplace, and a full height window wall—including two sets of double doors leading to the terrace—that reveal expansive ocean vistas stretching from Block Island to Montauk Point. Immediately south of the living room is a spacious Parlor (20x36) that also overlooks the terrace and ocean and adjoins a spectacular Sunroom (21x45) that is decorated with handsome paneled walls accented with fluted columns, and a wall of floor to ceiling windows offering panoramic water views of the ocean, harbor, Fishers Island Sound and the historic Watch Hill Lighthouse.

On the north side of the living room a hallway leads to a spacious fully equipped Kitchen (17x24) with extensive wood paneled cabinetry, Sub-Zero refrigerator, electric range, double ovens, warming tray and wine cooler.
